bleach and gasoline. stay with "eyewitness news" as we keep you up to date the on the rescue of carlesha a sign up for text alerts on cbs and by searching hash tag cbs-3 on breaking and twitter and facebook. 6:13. here's traffic and weather together. >> good morning, everybody. we have a messing on out there on storm scan three. there is some spots getting hit harder then others and it is our western suburbs where we see dark shades of green and bright colors of yellow, orange or red. that is where we will have the heavier rainfall intensity. just radar 101 basically. this isn't it. even though this is going to eventually clear out, we will catch a break by midday, we're not totally done with this. let me show you why. this than the is the most organize system we have ever seen with you it is a warm front followed by a cold front moving through in one swoop, basically, over the course of a single day. so this is essentially a wash out of a forecast, but a couple of breaks along the way. outside we will go to our eyewitness weather watcher network where we have a couple
6:14 am
rain reports coming in thanks to john dowell, where we have a half inch. fran, sent this one in a few hundreds of an inch is more of the story in chats worth, new jersey from mark. meanwhile we want to you keep in those eyewitness weather report. we will use them throughout the morning. meanwhile, we have to get through the rain this morning. break midday. and then we will see another round of the scattered showers in time for evening rush. though both commutes affect. not the best timing this time around. tomorrow, chilly breeze sets n we are setting up for a quiet weekend overall low to mid 50's and sprinkle from a more whimpy front by comparison, coming up on sunday. but roads are rough out there, so send things out to my collogue meteorologist carol erickson live in the cbs-3 mobile weather lab and right now we will find her on kelly drive, hi carol. >> oh, yeah we are on kelly drive and it is wet here as it is in most every other section of the city. lets head out on kelly drive f this is part of your commute
6:15 am
today you will find what everybody else is, and that is that you'll see the glistening headlines of all of the other cars coming opposite and that is certainly adding to the problem of driving at this time of the morning. the rain is not particularly heavy right now, but the spray in front of the car will be and that is going to get kickback. last week in haddon heights all about the leaving and you'll fine leaves along kelly drive. these can be particularly treacherous and i think if you can look down the roadway a little bit you will see a spray that is being kicked up in this rain storm that is coming. so expect to find, very changing conditions, today because the rain is going to continue, the leaves will continue, to come down and any of these storm drains that might be blocked up will create ponding. some of these roads can get treacherous even in a light rain, in fact, sometimes light rain brings the oils out in the water, for the surface and brings them up to the the top and that can make it a very slick coating out there so
6:16 am
just easy on the roads, this morning and the sun at least comes up earlier now then we have changed our clocks so we will not be dealing with total darkness in this wet but here on kelly drive as you can see people are heading in to work or heading out of the city, and we are going to be taking the next drive maybe down towards the airport and check roadways in that direction to see what is happening for people attempting to get out of town. but we're in the quite sure why anybody with want to get out of town on a beautiful rainy day like this let's check on the roads right now with vittoria. >> that doesn't make any sense, carol. >> good morning, everybody. you know, carol i'm so happy that they dumped on kelly drive because kelly drive, to me personally is one of the most scary roads at a time like this when we're experiencing this kind of weather. it is slick. we see all the time incidents happen on kelly drive that i mean no accident is good but accidents on kelly drive always tend to be pretty severe. let talk burr rush hour commute for a second.

6:35 am
few tenth of an inch an hour out of this kind of a steady rain. it is enough to cause a big old nuisance, pud dling on the roadways and probably reduced visibility across the board, but thinks generally how it will look out there, as the rain is lighter, outside we will go to middletown ship high school in cape may courthouse. live neighborhood network 50 degrees, feeling chillier anytime we have clouds and rain like this with a pattern like this despite the fact that we will get in the 60's down the shore here today it will feel chilly when you factor in that breeze. we are looking out towards poconos, upper 40's at best and then also expecting a chilly rain there that is really the story here, kind of your bottom line will be the the wetest conditions, happening this morning, and then we will end up with a little break followed up with more scattered showers toward evening, vittoria, over to you. thanks very much, katie. good morning everyone. your roadways are wet and damp and your rush hour is slow. i'm or toy bring the mood down but that is happening this morning. lets get outside and take a look. first let's talk about i-95 southbound, again, it is a bummer out there, out of the
6:36 am
northeast all the way down to the vine street expressway. you'll see taillights ahead of you, if you are brake lights rather. if you are traveling between academy and the vine, that is the extent of the delay, you'll have pockets where you'll be moving better but generally speaking you are slow the whole way out of the north east. if you are traveling elsewhere like the schuylkill expressway not too far from the conshohocken, east and westbound commuting not awful but with this weather and with the rush still approaching, maneuvering through your western suburbs will be slow, westbound, you drop down to 17 miles an hour and that delay will affect southbound side of the roosevelt boulevard. there is no doubt about that. you can avoid kelly drive would i consider avoiding it because it gets so slippery and scary but also as we take a look at new jersey turnpike northbound at seven three, still dealing with an overturn tractor trailer accident, still blocking two lanes, in major problems a at the airport but still a good idea to call ahead, mass transit is moving fine, ukee. vittoria, thank you. new this morning the insurance institute for highway safety is out with its annual ratings of vehicle booster seats. i.
6:37 am
hs, based ratings of new models on how well three-point shoulder and lap seat belts fit a child sized test dummy. out of the 41 models tested a record number of 27 were dubbed best bets. that means booster seat was placing a four to eight year-old child in the right seat belt position in most cars, minivans and suv's. booth us ter range in price from 25 to $370. consumers continue to have a tough time, distinguishing among financial professionals but it may not be entirely their fault. >> cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger say financial services industry makes it tough with you she will cut through merkiness to select the right for you. jill, good morning. >> good morning. >> you say that there are two basic types of financial pros, all right, hook us up, what are they. >> reporter: okay, first type is someone that is held to a standard that is called suitability. this is a a pretty low standard. when he or she gives advice to you they have to give you
6:38 am
advice of something that is suitable for you. the other type of advisor is a fiduciary, that person has to give you advise in your best interest. you see the difference. i can tell you one product that seems like it is okay for you but may not be the best product. the sec says, people don't know the difference between the two and that is why we're out beating the drum to tell you there is a big difference of the the two types of advisors. >> big difference and big problem with that misunderstanding too. >> reporter: yes, absolutely. is there a coalition of three big financial planning organizations, cfp board, financial planning association and national association of personal financial advisors. they are out with a white paper. it found something that is pretty shocking, when they surveyed a whole bunch of different advisors, two thirds of those advisors, misidentified themselves. meaning they said, we can do financial planning but they don't. what is the problem here? well, you know what if i go to
6:39 am
a doctor and i think that doctor is an orthopedic surgeon and can replace my knee but really just a primary care physician, wouldn't i want to know that? >> yes, with that being said what should consumers do to protect themselves. >> reporter: are well, sec has really been trying to make fiduciary standard the big prize in the industry but has had a lot of push bag a as you can imagine from financial services. they spend millions of dollars, fight ago begins the fiduciary standard. so, until the government does this, your number one piece of information that you go into these meetings, you say are you a fiduciary, must you put me first, so for more on the difference between these different types, you can get to jill on >> thanks very much. >> appreciate it. >> appreciate the heads up. >> very important distinction there. thank you you. >> wet start the two day coming up this morning vittoria and katie a has traffic and weather together we have got you covered. >> sure you do, plus talking
